A fun, family hike that wanders through towers of ancient time. Moab is well known for bizarre geologic formations and Fisher Towers are some of the strangest and most unusual. You must hike through these towers to realize how impressive they are. The landscape is something out of a science fiction novel. Hikers be aware there is a small ladder you must be able to navigate to finish the trail.

This is a great hike for the hot summer months in Moab. The trail follows the stream for about 5 miles. The streambed narrows and increases in height to about 100-150 feet high and 10-20 feet apart, ending at a beautiful waterfall. There can be wildlife along the way such as toads, lizards, birds and deer. The scenery is fantastic and the waterfall is great to stand under and cool off.

This hiker-only trail winds through the canyon along a beautiful stream to Morning Glory Natural Bridge, the sixth largest natural bridge in the United States. It’s a fine place for beginning hikers and children, with Morning Glory Arch just off the canyon’s main section only 2 miles from the trailhead. The well-marked trail follows the canyon bottom, crossing the stream several times.
